# Let U={a, b, c, d, e, f, g}, A={a, b, f, g}, B={c, d, e}, C={a, g}, and D={a, b, c, d, e, f}. Use the roster method to write each of the following sets. A'

Recall that: $A'$ represents the complement of set $A$ which is the set of all elements in the universal set that are not in $A$.

In this case, set $A'$ contains all the elements of set $U$ that are not in set $A$. Since set $A$ contains a, b, f, and g, then $A’$ does not contain these elements:

$\{\text{\textcolor{#c34632}{a}, \textcolor{#c34632}{b}, c, d, e, \textcolor{#c34632}{f}, \textcolor{#c34632}{g}}\}$

Hence,

$A'=\{\text{c, d, e}\}$
